Drive Backup Software

April 14th, 2010 1 comment

I used to run an IT support department for a multi-national company in a previous life so I have come across every computer issue you could probably imagine.

One of the most traumatic has got to be data loss.

Click here for the drive backup software that I use.

If you haven’t ever lost any of your data then you are lucky, I have seen grown men in tears. It’s not a pretty sight let me tell you.

Don't cry when your hard drive fails, backup now

As we move more and more of our lives onto our computers and as hackers get more and more sophisticated at stealing data everyone needs to pay careful attention to how they look after their data.

You have to ask yourself a simple question.

If my computer was stolen, how would it affect my life and could I still do the work and live the way I did before the event?

If the answer is that your work and life would be affected in any way the next question you should think about is… Can I recreate the lost data & how long will it take me ?

Inevitably whatever answer you come up with is going to be a negative one.

The best thing that you can do is use prevention…the old adage is a good one… prevention is better than cure.

Get yourself a piece of backup software and automate the backing up at least once a month with manual backups after critical updates.

The best software to use is the award winning Acronis range, you can take a look here drive backup software. It allows what is called imaging of your drive, this takes a snapshot at a physical level so that:

  1. It is quicker than traditional backup of files
  2. It is safer because it backs up everything
  3. Restores are very easy as you just restore the image and don’t need to re-install windows or other programs.

So I highly recommend getting a copy now, it will save you tears later and let you sleep easy at night.
